description for "Peas: Pisum sativum 'Oregon Giant'"

‘Oregon Giant’ bears huge yields of sweet, exceptionally large, 5 inch crispy flat pods on sturdy short vines. Its sweet berries combine with these large medium-green pods to make the harvest quick. These are the finest tasting, most vigorous sugar snap peas you’ll find, bred by Dr. James Baggott at Oregon State University especially for fresh harvesting with sweet flavor and extra crunchy texture. Use them for colorful tasty stirfries or eat the juicy pods raw. An especially rewarding crop to plant with children who will snack on them happily all day! Vines grow with or without support. Pick peas frequently when pods are fully formed but still flat with tiny immature peas. Sugar snap peas are delicious in stirfries with ginger, soy sauce and garlic, but cook very quickly, just until they turn a deeper green color. Or enjoy the juicy pods as you pick them fresh form the vines. – edited by dtd pbcouchman
